something violent and fierce and unmoving.

Andrew Joseph Minyard. 20. 11/04. Scorpio. Fox. Goalkeeper. #03.

. . . but when it came to crimes against his own person Andrew couldn't care less.
He held his life in less regard than he did anything else.

❝ You are a pipe dream. ❞

❝ I won't be like them. I won't let you let me be. ❞

❝ Nine percent of the time I don't want to kill you. I always hate you. ❞

❝ Don't look at me like that. I am not your answer, and you sure as fuck aren't mine. ❞

❝ The next time someone comes for you, stand down and let me deal with it. ❞

❝ Give your back to me. ❞

❝ Hey, Pinocchio. Time to run. This one's for you. ❞

❝ Oh, Neil, as unpredictable as he is unreal. ❞

❝ It'll be fine. I promised, didn't I? Don't you believe me? ❞

❝ Remember this feeling. This is the moment you stop being the rabbit. ❞

❝ It's just more fun to tell you no. That's what you wanted, right? You wanted me to have fun. I am. Aren't you? ❞

❝ What would it take to make you stay? ❞

❝ A man can only have so many issues. ❞

❝ Your parents are dead, you are not fine, and nothing is going to be okay. This is not news to you. But from now until May you are still Neil Josten and I am still the man who said he would keep you alive. ❞

❝ You can't cut down someone who's already in the gutter. You just waste your time and mine. ❞

❝ Don't make me hurt you. I don't want blood in my ice cream. ❞

❝ Reap what you sow or burn the field down, the choice is yours. Be smarter next time, would you? ❞

❝ Jean. Hey, Jean. Jean Valjean. Hey. Hey. Hello. ❞

❝ You'd rather I let him go? Put a band-aid on him and he'll be good as new. ❞

❝ Is your learning curve a horizontal line? ❞

❝ I am self-destructive, not stupid. I know better. ❞

❝ Don't be so afraid to die. ❞

❝ Revenge is a motivator only for the weak-willed. ❞

❝ Sunrise, Abram, death: these are truths. ❞

❝ Because I made you a promise. I did not forget it just because you chose not to believe me. I did what I said I would do, and fuck you for expecting anything else. ❞

❝ A junkie like you can't be that cold. ❞

❝ You can't put a leash on me. Don't think you can, okay? And don't be stupid enough to tell other people you will. It's not safe. You'll make me want to break you. ❞

❝ You're staying with us. If they try to take you away they will lose. ❞

❝ And I'm not as smart as I thought I was. I know better than to do this again. Perhaps it's the self-destructive streak in me? ❞

❝ Is your spine the spine of the righteous? Are you trying your best to step on my toes because you're feeling the tragic weight of the holier than thou? ❞

❝ I don't feel for anyone or anything. Don't forget that. ❞

❝ Oh, Coach. You can't even imagine how much fun we are having right now. It's overwhelming. Give us a minute to catch our breaths before our hearts explode in our chest. ❞

andrew has saved my life more times than i could possibly count. i do not know where i would be without him; i could feel lost and stray off of my path but he somehow always leads me back to it. he clears the fog when i can no longer see it. he becomes the light that guides me; the north star for a lost traveler. the home for me when i needed safety. the strength for when i try to get back up from the ground again but fail. he is an existence that is far too wondrous and heavenly for me to even begin to fathom, one that i do not deserve to know or have but will always be grateful for. i would not be here today if i did not find him when i did; i would not be the person that i've come to be. the fight against my own demons would be impossible without him by my side. he is my savior, i've been found.
